We are running a mixture of Contribute 3, 4, and the new CS3
with Contribute Publishing Server 1.1, connecting through LDAP to
our Active Directory environment, which we have been running over a
year. We have suddenly run into an odd set of problems. Almost all
the user entries in the Administration page were marked out with a
red line - like they would be if terminated - with a "user not in
directory" error even though 1) they are in AD, 2) we can verify
the accounts in the CPS panel, and 3) they can log in and edit
their pages just fine. Suddenly, the red lines went away but when
we try to add new users, we get the message "Exceeded site user
limit". Which should be impossible as we have purchased 250
licenses of both Contribute and CPS, and we've only added 100 users
so far. The only things that have changed recently are that 1) we
added a new AD server and 2) We've upgraded our admin users to CS3
while everyone else is still running 3.11 or 4. Any ideas?
To workaround this limitation, you can modify ckm.xml file to
override the default value of 200.
**you should back up this file prior to executing these
Stop CPS via the services console by typing services.msc in
the Run As.. window.
Select Macromedia Contribute Publishing Server and click
Browse to Contribute Publishing
select the file ckm.xml
Open ckm.xml in a notepad editor.
Change the value between the two tags to whatever number you
Save the changes
Restart the server.
